Kristen Wiig in "The Women of SNL" special on November 1

Saturday Night Live will air a two-hour tribute to its female cast members Nov. 1. “The Women of SNL” special will include clips (duh), but also new material from Rachel Dratch, Nora Dunn, Tina Fey, Ana Gasteyer, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Laraine Newman, Cheri Oteri, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, Molly Shannon, and Kristen Wiig. Um, Jane Curtin and Julia Sweeney, call your agents!

This special is obviously a follow-up to last year’s hit Betty White episode, and who knows? Maybe the sustained interest in SNL‘s female performers will lead to there being more of them.


What? Laraine Newman? That's awesome! Yeah, I agree at least that Jane Curtin should be in on this. She was an original (with Laraine) and the first female Weekend Update host! She did it right after Chevy Chase and kept doing it (usually with a co-anchor like Dan or Bill) until she left!

Truly an honor for Kristen to be the only one on this list who is currently on the show. That said, it's sort of by default. Abby just got regular status, Nasim is a featured player for her second year now, and it's Vanessa's first year.

Also note that Julia Louis-Dreyfus was the only one on this list who was on the show when Lorne wasn't.

I think I'm most excited about Cheri Oteri! =^)
